    The Absolute Truth.

    E Archer, NYC

    Yes, well, this is what all revolutionairies say, but after the old order is toppled, there is no guarantee the new order will be what people fought for (e.g. French Revolution & Russian Revolution).

    Mike, Norwalk

    Archer, said well. Further, the question to be asked is, what is it that we need to become? To become free we must not remain liberals/conservatives, democrats/republicans, socialists/fascists, etc. To remain mere chattel and slaves, we need to become nothing else, we're there (-; speaking collectively, not personally, of course ;-).

    "Thank you Alex, I'll take the bleeding obvious for 10,000." Sorry, but this falls in the self-evident category.

    warren, olathe

    Who decides when we need to be something different? If it is our selves that make the determination then are we really being changed? If it is Waffler's Global court then we will be changed into slaves. Quote lacks any inspirational qualities.
